7:00am
well, good morning. welcome to "mornings on 2." i'm dave clark. >> i'm tori campbell.
7:01am
it's wednesday, september 1st -- september 12th. happening right now. this is hillary clinton speaking about the death of chris stevens. >> i asked chris to be our envoy to the rebel opposition. he arrived on a cargo ship in the port of -- of benghazi. he risked his life to stop a tyrant and then gave his life to help build a better libya. the word needs more chris stevenses. i spoke with his sister -- chris stevens. i spoke with his sister, ann, this morning and told her he will be a hero by many nations. shawn smith was an air force veteran. he spent ten years as an information management officer in the state department. he was posted at the hague and
7:02am
was in libya on a brief, temporary assignment. he was a husband to his rife, heather, with whom i spoke this moving -- morning. he was a father to two young children, samantha and nathan. they will grow up proud of their father for the service he gave to our country, the service that took us toback and finally to benghazi. the mission that drew them to libya is both noble and necessary and we and the people of libya honor their memory by carrying it forward. this is not easy. today, many americans are asking, indeed, i asked myself, how could this happen?
7:03am
how could this happen in a country we helped liberate in a city we helped save from destruction? this question reflects just how complicated and at times how confounding the world can be. but we must be clear-eyed, even in our grief. this was an attack by a small and savage group, not the people or government of libya. everywhere chris and his team went in libya in, in a country scarred by war and tyranny, they were hailed by friends and partners and when the attack came yesterday, libyans stood and fought to defend our post.
7:04am
some were wounded. libyans carried chris' body to the hospital and they helped rescue and lead other americans to safety. and last night, when i spoke with the president of libya, he strongly condemned the violence and pledged every effort to protect our people and pursue those responsible. the friendship between our countries, born out of shared struggle, will not be another casualty of this attack. a free and stable libya is still in america's interest and security. and we will not turn our back on that nor will we rest until those responsible for these attacks are found and brought to justice. we are working closely with the libyan authorities to move
7:05am
swiftly and surely. we are also working with partners around the world to safeguard other american ambassadors, consulates and citizens. there will be more time later to reflect. but today we have work to do. there is no higher higher priority than pro-- no higher priority than protecting the men and women who serve us. some have thought to justify this vicious behavior along with the protest that took place at our embassy in cairo as well as inflammatory material on the internet. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. but let me be clear -- there's no justification for this. none.
7:06am
violence like this is no way to honor religion or faith and as long as there are those who would take innocent life in the name of god, the world will never know a true and lasting peace. it especially difficult that this -- it is especially difficult that it happened on 9/11. it's an anniversary that means a great deal to all americans. every year on that day, we are reminded that our work is not yet finished, that the job of putting an end to violent extremelyism and building -- extremism and building a safe world continues. but september 11th means even more than that. it's a day where we remember thousands of heroes. the bonds that connect all americans wherever we are on
7:07am
this earth and the values that see us through every storm. and now it is a day on which we will remember shawn, chris, and their colleagues. may god bless them and may god bless the thousands of americans working in every corner of the world who make this country the greatest force for peace, prosperity and progress and a force that's always stood for human dignity, the greatest force the world has ever known and may god continue to bless the united states of america. thank you. >> you've been listening live to secretary of state, hillary clinton, speaking there in washington, talking about the attacks, the deadly attacks a at the embassy in libya where four americans were killed,
7:08am
including our u.s. ambassador to libya, chris stevens, who has bay area ties. that's a picture of him there. she says he will be remembered as a hero by many nations. she said this was an attack by a small and savage grew, not the government of libya. she said there were a lot of libya who helped the americans, taking them to the hospital. she also said the -- clinton said she has spoken to the interim president of libya. he's apologized and condemned this violence. clinton says a free and stable libya is still in their interest. they will not not -- they will not rest until those responsible for this are brought to justice and she also pointed out this happened on september 11th. we're going to continue to follow this story here throughout the morning on ktvu "mornings on 2" and in developing news in about 35 minutes, president obama will comment on the attacks that killed the four americans in
7:09am
libya. as i mentioned, chris stevens, a bay area native, is among the dead. ktvu's alex savidge joins us live from uc berkeley and has been talking to a former colleague of stevens. alex, what did he have to say? >> reporter: well, the former colleague said one of the best and brightest at the state department. he grew up here in northern california. went to college here at uc berkeley. he also got his law degree from uc hastings law in san francisco. according to the white house, all were killed in the attack on the us consulate in bengmazi. it was an angry group shooting employees and setting the group on fire. this group was angry about a viral video made by a man from southern california and that group thinks that video mocs
7:10am
their muhammed prophet. chris stevens had been working as a diplomat to libya since 2007 and this morning, i talked to one of his former colleagues at the state department. >> chris went to libya when things were far more unsettled than they are now before gadhafi -- before the transition had taken place. he's a gutsy guy. he will do his job and do it with a big smile. >> reporter: and stevens was the career foreign service member, an expert on the middle east who spoke both arabic and french. a short time ago, i received the dean from the uc hastings school of law, he e-mailed me a statement about -- he e-mailed me a statement about his death. and he said he was performing the highest role a lawyer can be called upon to perform. and again, hillary clinton, in
7:11am
her words, said that embassy chris stevens, a bay area native, gave his life to build a better america. alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. in other news, after months of rumors in just a couple of hours from right now, apple is expected to unveil its new iphone. ktvu's claudine wong is in san francisco with more on the details and the excitement that's building. good morning, claudine. >> reporter: that's right, dave. a lot of rumors, a lot of buzz out here. the next generation, the i-5 phone, and what ke -- the iphone 5. and what can be different. they are talking about faster downloads, a different screen and a different connector. you can see the apple folks out there. easy to recognize pause they are always dressed in black. setting up for the long lines.
7:12am
things have really picked up within the last couple of minutes of them getting things ready out here along howard street. this announcement at 10:00 this morning. we are expecting to hear from apple's ceo tim cook who is expected to come out and give us the nitty-gritty at what it will entail. if you believe the online report, already demand for this iphone is very high. maybe the highest it's been for any iphone release. we'll have to wait to see on that. what else could they talk about today? there's the mini ipad. we do not expect to hear about that today as we do about the iphone shuffle and nanos. they will be talking about different versions of that. obviously a lot of hype around something like this, apple has a big chunk of the market when you talk about smartphones an tablets you can see the media
7:13am
hype surrounding this. this street is absolutely packed. there's no parking along here because all media trucks are filling up each and every space. we wait for this announcement set to get underway at 10:00 a.m. claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, claudine. 7:12. let's check in with sal. sal, i'm jute curious, is there gonna be -- i'm just curious, is there gonna be traffic impacted by this? >> third and howard, gonna be a little bit bit -- a little bit crowded there. although they don't have any streets closed. somebody asked me that on twitter. the best way to go get down there is public transportation. b.a.r.t. is a good way, paul street. let's take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. it's backed up all the way to the macarthur maze. it's about a 20-minute delay with no major problems gets
7:14am
onto the bridge. we've's also looking at the -- we're also looking at the commute in oakland. traffic looking pretty good. southbound 6 0, by the way, i just -- 680, by the way, there was an accident at the stone valley exit on the shoulder. 2 0 is getting a little bit of -- 280 is getting a little bit of slowing as well. let's go to steve. all right. temperatures today, very close to what we had yesterday. there's just not a lot of difference here. the upper air pattern is changing for the middle of the country. today, i think a little bit cooler for a few. inland temperatures come down a little bit unless you are inland far enough, and then it's warm and hot. it does look warm into friday but then cooler by sunday. tropical clouds continue to be
7:15am
blowing up over the sierra nevada. for us, only subtle changes. low clouds increasing. i mean, yesterday, they were very shallow and very thin off the sonoma coast. all the way down to santa cruz. an onshore breeze is there. 50s, everyone is close. about 53 to 57 of the it doesn't matter. san jose even santa rosa and out towards fairfield, concord and livermore. west-southwest 18. trying to pick up a little bit. napa west at 3. fog starting to show up. i know napa, vallejo, also parts in san jose. tropical clouds will stay east and south. you can see the leading edge of a pattern change there. the system is building up in the gulf of mexico. the question for us is will we get a little bit of an yore shore breeze or will it stay warm inland or fog on the coast? usually, by this time of year, the fog is ready pack up and go out for winter vacation. that's not the case.
7:16am
it are -- it will be warmer. today, quiet. very quiet. temperatures, very close to what we've had the last couple of days. it's hot up to ukiah. santa rosa, 79. a lot more clouds. kentfield, 78. 67 alameda, berkeley, 70. livermore, 86. santa cruz one of the few that will get close to 70 degrees. the rest within the 60s. 70s to near 80. a little bit warmer inland. maybe saturday but with your weekend in view, it does look cooler. 7:16. what's being called secret construction at the white house we're told is wrapping you up. but we're still not sure what was built. >> for two years, crews have been working behind a large green fence right near the west wing. officially, the workers have been upgrading the white house
7:17am
utilities but there's also speck place something really big was being built underground. no comment from the white house and more work is due to begin on the north lawn. a lot of investors have high hopes and the federal -- that the federal reserve will announce a third round of bond purchases tomorrow when it ends a two-day policy meeting. that may trigger borrowing as well as spending. investors say the feds may feel compelled to do something because the economy is slow -- the unemployment rate is so slow. 7:17. they just got back from a five- week break but lawmakers are getting ready leave town again. political reporter jamie dupree joins us via skype now from washington, d.c. to explain when congress could adjourn and the big issues lawmakers will be leaving on the table. >> reporter: yeah, the big issues they will be leaving, pretty much every single thing you can imagine will be left on
7:18am
the table. it looks like about the only thing they are gonna do is to approve a stop budget. the congress has not completed its budget bills on time since 1994 and to the best of my research, only three times in about the last 40 years have they done that. so they have to come up with a temporary plan to keep the government running. we have everything from what? the debt situation to what to do with the -- about the income tax rates that expire at the end of the year. a whole host of measures and none of that will be worked on by next week. if they do get out of town by next week, they usually stay until october. >> do you think the situation in libya where four were killed might change their minds? >> reporter: no, i don't think anything is gonna change their mind right now. what te want to do, get home,
7:19am
stump for votes and try to make sure -- blah they want to do -- what they want to do, get home, stump for votes and -- the situation is, you look back historicrily. i've been around. i remember back when different parties held these in the reagan administration. we were age to get a lot stuff done. we've got a rally going on outside of the capitol just outside. a bunch of farm groups and farmers demanding action. the farm bill is stuck and seemingly noing -- going nowhere. no bill to help the postal office -- service. i could run down a laundry list. it's got gonna get down before the election. >> there's gonna be serious consequences because moody's is crediting to lower the u.s.
7:20am
credit union if they don't pass their budget bill. >> reporter: well, the congress isn't gonna act until the columns of the capitol begin collapsing and there's no collapsing and the dome is upright. both sides have their answer and are not willing to yield to the other to have some kind of compropose mice. we'll see if that changes after the election. but as of right now, nobody sees deal making. at this point in time, there's so little chance getting things down that the conventional wisdom in the hallways is here. why stick around if everybody is gonna point political fingers? >> all right. thank you. you can find a link to jamie's washington insider blog on our website. go to ktvu. pull down the news menu bar and go to the politics page. >> that was really interesting. >> yes. thousands paid tribute to the memory of brett olsen who

7:24am
hypotheticals. we responded last night to these votes. [the question is inaudible] >> i think president obama has demonstrated a -- a lack of clarity as to a foreign policy. my foreign policy has three fundamental branches. first, confidence in our cause, a recognition that the principles was based upon are not something we shrink from or apologize for. we stand for those principles. the second is clarity in our purpose which is when we have a foreign policy objective, we explain it to the people. and number three, the rare circumstances where we decide it's necessary to apply
7:25am
military might. , understanding the nature involved, understanding when -- what would be left behind us when the mission has been terminated. these issues are essential to our policy and i haven't seen them from the president. as i have watched over the past three and a half years, the president has had some successes. he's had some failures. it's a hit-or-miss approach. but it's not been based on sound foreign policy. >> we've been listening live to mitt romney speaking in jail, florida. he's talking about the deadly attack in libya where four americans were killed, including chris stevens, who was a bay area native. among other things, he criticized president obama, attacking what he called a lack

7:44am
to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. but there's absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. the world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. already, many libyans have joined us in doing so. this attack will not break the bonds between the united states and the libya. libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside americans. libyans helped some of our diplomats' fine safety and carried ambassador chris stevens' to the hospital where he we tragically learned he had

7:47am
our country is only as strong as the character of our people and those who represent us around the globe. no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values we stand for. today we mourn for more americans who represent the very best of the united states of america. we will not waver in our commitment to see this terrible act will be -- those responsible will be brought to justice. these four americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. they should give every american great pride in the country they
